Harsha Bhogle, a well-known Indian commentator and journalist, believes that India will have the upper hand over Pakistan in the upcoming Super 12s match of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Bhogle believes that in the past, India has been able to handle the pressure of the big game better than the Men in Green and that this will play a significant role once again.
According to Bhogle, Pakistan will be thinking about their poor record against India in World Cups, which will add to the already immense pressure of the match. He stated that India would benefit from this because they have previously dealt with pressure. The 60-year-old also identified some flaws in Pakistan’s team that could lead to their defeat in the match.
According to Bhogle, Pakistan’s batting unit is overly reliant on their openers, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, and if India manages to pick early wickets, Pakistan’s fragile middle-order will crumble. Pakistan is heavily reliant on Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam. They are fantastic players, and Babar Azam is in fantastic form. But if India can knock over a couple in the powerplay, I’m not sure the Pakistan middle-order, despite the fact that there is now a lot of experience in there, will be enough to win the game,”
Bhogle said. Bhogle also cautioned both teams not to take their opponents lightly, as this can lead to complacency, which can allow the opposition to steal the game. He advised both teams to minimize their errors and not allow the opposition to capitalize on them. He stated that both teams must recognize that they are up against world-class opponents.
